    Unit price  per 

    The long Purple Eggplant (Solanum melongena) is a variety of eggplant known for its long, slender, and deep purple-colored fruit. It has a delicate, mild flavor and is a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. It is a warm-season vegetable that is well-suited for planting in the late spring or early summer and takes around 70-80 days to reach maturity.

    To grow Long Purple Eggplant, you will need:

    • Well-drained, fertile soil
    • Full sun
    • Eggplant seeds or seedlings
    • Supporting structures, such as trellis or cages

    Growing Instructions:

    1. Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or sow seed directly into the ground after the last frost.

    2. Transplant seedlings to the garden after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. Space the plants about 2-3 feet apart.

    3. Water the eggplant regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    4. Fertilize the eggplant with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

    5. Keep the eggplant free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.

    6. Provide support to the plants, such as a trellis or cage, to keep the fruit off the ground

    7. Harvest the eggplant when the fruit is glossy and firm, and the skin is shiny.
